Considerations of Paramus Back Surgery for a Herniated Disc

That is why Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center exists. Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center is here to assist Paramus back pain and neck pain patients uncover an alternative that functions for their Paramus back pain relief goal.


There are lots of Paramus back pain relief plan options! Recent research discloses some interesting findings. Let us look at opioids and Tylenol for back pain relief. There is no difference in low back pain relief and radicular extremity pain (leg pain sciatica) relief between using Tylenol and using powerful opioid drugs. (1) Melatonin protects the intervertebral disc’s nucleus pulposus cells from apoptosis (cell death) and blocked disc degeneration. (2) Melatonin accomplishes this. There’s hope for disc degeneration’s reversal. And what about this study? Spontaneous resorption of a lumbar herniated disc confirmed on MRI was observed in all of 9 patients who felt back pain and sciatic leg pain, refused back surgery, and demonstrated no motor deficit! It took a mean of about 8.7 months. Clinical relief with conservative treatment came about in a mean of just 5.7 weeks. (3) That’s exciting news! The discs resorbed.


What makes a patient choose Paramus back surgery over other options? The patient’s ideas about the treatment may be based on inadequate information. The time it takes a patient to make a decision may be rushed because of scheduling when the patient is one who requires time to really think about the options. The patient’s not wanting to disturb the system, upset the healthcare provider by refusing recommended treatment. The patient’s past experiences with treatment options as taken by relatives or friends and the resulting good or bad outcomes. Choosing back surgery or a non-surgical treatment plan for low back and/or leg pain due to a disc herniation is a big, complex decision. (4) It’s a decision-making process Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center understands well, that Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center has helped many Paramus chiropractic patients to make.
